The Case for Innovation in U.S. Housing

Safe, quality and affordable housing is essential. Yet, the current housing ecosystem is ill-suited to adequately address consumers’ growing preferences for rentals and the financial realities of those most likely to purchase housing over the next 15 years. Our mission should be to devote our collective energy, brainpower, technology and resources to develop innovative solutions that allow the U.S. housing ecosystem to evolve and meet the needs of consumers once again.
